Following the Battlefield 1’s gameplay reveal yesterday during Electronic Art’s press conference, the official Battlefield website has been updated with details on the maps we will see in the WWI shooter.
Listing a total of four maps (for now), Battlefield 1 will see players playing across Europe and the Western Front, ranging from France to Italy.
Amiens takes players to the French city of the same name, in the middle of a German offensive. Crumbling alleys, a courthouse, bridges and railways make up the key fighting zones of the majestic city. The image (see below) shows a train, presumably running through the center of the map, and is most likely apart of a new class of ‘behemoth’ vehicles which can be controlled by players.
The St. Quentin Scar places you into a massive battle on the scarred battlefield of Northern France. As part of the Kaiser’s battle, the German army must throw everything they have to try to break through the British lines. Players will have to push through the trenches of the St. Quentin Scar. Be the first soldier to break through the fortified lines and assault Travecy, a village so far untouched by war.
Monte Grappa takes soldiers to the peaks of the Venetian Alps, where zeppelins and bi-planes patrol the skies and the Italians face off the Austro Hungarian Empire on the ground. The mountain forts must be seized by troops in order to use the massive fort cannons, which can help stop advancing enemies scaling the mountain.
Finally, Empire’s Edge sees a fortified shoreline come under siege. A Mediterranean village is pounded by artillery from dreadnought battleships, suggesting that we’ll see a big combination of land and sea forces in this map.
